Long time no see!
Look what happened to me this week!
I was so determined to have some stitching to show .....
I'd been meaning to finish this little sachet for sooo long, (actually I mentioned it "here" in July last year) and this Friday I finally set to ..... and promptly wrecked the the whole thing!!
I thought I knew what I was doing, but I must have rushed at it!
The instructions say to stitch the front and back together one square out from the outer row of cross stitches. I machine stitched around the design, on each piece - the front and the back - one square out and then cut away the outer fabric, one square away from that machine stitched row! What was I thinking of!
When I re-read the instructions I saw I should have left a 1 cm seam! Aaaargh!
So, now I am very carefully hand stitching around the edge ..... and hoping I can salvage the poor little sachet somehow!
You would not believe the number of times I have read these instructions in the past!
Hope you are having a better stitching time than me (or should that be "I")! Doh!
